About the Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies

What Makes us Unique
  • Early introduction to interdisciplinary topics and methods of inquiry (LBS 100, LBS 200)
  • Early training in research methods
  • Core education made up of existing minors or concentrations in the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) 
How to Get Started

Because BALS is a new program, we have less than twenty majors. This means that you can receive very individualized attention and advising from our advisers and instructors. Schedule an advising appointment and learn about how to create an interdisciplinary degree plan that best fits your academic and career goals.

You can view the list of pre-approved minor-minor combinations that our students are already exploring or that are well suited for a variety of interdisciplinary careers.
